Are Moles in Utah?

I have been trapping gophers for a number of years in Utah, and as of yet have never encountered a mole in the trapping process.  From all experience and information that has been made available to me it is my understanding that moles are not present along the Wasatch front.  I am providing a link which shows a distribution chart of a number of mole species.  None of the maps show activity in Utah.  If you encounter a dirt mound in your yard in Utah, it is a pocket gopher.
